Announcement icon During the Covid crisis, I am having video sessions on Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, Whats App, and by phone. I also have an online group.
I am a psychotherapist with over forty years experience. I work with individuals, couples and groups who are seeking help with many different issues including anxiety, depression, grief/loss, trauma/PTSD, self esteem, identity, relationship, career and other areas of human concern. I offer a safe and comfortable environment in which to explore issues relating to your life circumstances. My approach is compassionate, supportive and interactive with focus on the whole person. It is important to explore the mind, body, spirit connection to work toward insight, awareness, practical solutions, positive action and change.
Patients have commented that my approach is warm, caring, vibrant, empathetic, playful and lively. I have a sincere respect and appreciation for a person's strengths and struggles. Problems and issues can be openly discussed, understood, explored, and worked through.
Together, we can explore and find ways to help you to move forward from pains and hurts to create a more fullfilling and happier life. I have an MSW with advanced training certificates in Gestalt Therapy and EMDR (A teatment for Trauma/PTSD)
